Everyone who phones into radio shows is an expert in a field other than the one they are talking about. This appears to be the new appreciation of society developed in people through universal education.
I have lost count of the numbers of people I have seen writing about the EU or speaking about it who actually know much about it. Everything that is wrong with the UK they blame on the EU but not their own limited world view or limited knowledge. They cannot speak about the international rules of trade, they have no figures on the numbers needed to keep business healthy in the UK, they know only they don’t want foreigners and their local factory was closed down in the last 40 years.
But truly it is remarkable that the Conservative party, that has existed on two foundation stones its entire existence, to stay in power and maintain the monarchy, has managed to have 17 million people blame austerity and the lack of affordable housing onto the EU and not onto Thatcher’s legacy.
They certainly know how to educate the masses in the Conservative clubs of England.
